Spring 2024 Clinic Placement and Shift Sign-Up

 Clinic online priority registration will begin Monday, March 4th. You can find the clinic schedule for each campus in the Student Hub > documents > clinic > clinic registration. Please know that schedules may change to adapt to unforeseen circumstances.

The Spring 2024 term runs from May 6th to August 17th. We are closed May 27th for the Memorial Day Holiday and July 4th for Independence Day. The August Intensive for the San Diego clinic will run from August 19th– August 28th. To register for the August Intensive, you must register during the Spring 2024 registration period.

If you are a graduating intern, please be sure to submit your request during the priority period to have a better chance of getting the shifts you want. Shifts will be assigned working backwards from Senior Intern 9 to Senior Intern 1, based on time received.


  1. All students registering for Assistant 1 and Associate Intern 1 must choose a Practitioner (P) shift on the schedule.
  2. In San Diego, Senior Interns may only sign-up for one Japanese shift per term unless there is no waitlist. Japanese shifts require completion of Japanese Acupuncture I or have been on a Japanese shift in prior terms.
  3. If you are requesting more than 3 clinic shifts within one term, please make sure you have approval from the Student Success Committee prior to registration. Please contact your student advisor to forward that request.
  4. In San Diego, onsite Intensives are for A2, AI-2, AI-3, and Senior Interns where it will not be your first time as a Senior Intern in the clinic. UCSD p-shifts are available for AI-1.
  5. Please provide us with as many availabilities as possible. The more limited your availability, the less likely that you will be scheduled for shifts, which may affect your progress in the program.

All clinical students must complete the online OSHA training and online clinic orientation with quiz prior to the start of the term.

To sign-up for your clinic level, please follow the Registar’s email regarding registration information. You must register for your clinic level(s) on your Student Portal. (A hand out of clinic codes can be found under resources)

Once you have successfully registered for your clinic level(s), you choose your clinical shifts on the clinical site.

Once on the clinical site, click on the “Clinic Shift Sign-Ups” tab.

On the “Clinic Shift Sign-Ups” page, click required reading and resources, then click on clinic shift add/drop form for your respective campus.

Fill out the Clinic Shift Add/Drop Request Form in its entirety. If you are enrolled in more than one clinic level, you may fill out one form for all your levels.

Please note: In order to process your clinic shift request, the clinic shift add/drop request form must be filled out completely. Incomplete forms will be removed from the queue, returned to the student for completion and added to the queue at the end of the line when resubmitted.
